Basic prettylst instructions are included in the prettylst release
(that's the prettylst.pl.html file). You must have Perl v5.8.6 or
later to run PL, Available free from ActiveState:
Basic command line:
prettylst.pl -i <input path> -o <output path> -e <error report file name>
There are some conversions in prettylst, but the PL coders (mainly me)
weren't really available for the 5.12 to 5.14 conversions. The
standard conversion option is -c <conversion name>. For the various
conversions, please see prettylst.pl.html for the names and what each
Barak stepped in w/o digging into what I affectionately call the
tangled mess that is Prettylst, and released a separate Perl script.
For 5.14 to 5.16, we are going to a Java converter, through (portions
of) PCGen itself. I haven't had a chance to really delve into it yet.
